The Weber Shandwick Collective celebrates industry recognition from Fast Company and Ad Age 

The Weber Shandwick Collective (TWSC) is thrilled to celebrate two recent industry accolades that underscore our commitment to innovation, creativity and excellence – and our unwavering dedication to earning value by contributing value.


TWSC was named #1 in the Public Relations and Brand Strategies category on Fast Company’s 2024 Most Innovative Companies list. This was the inaugural year of the category, and we are honoured to be leading the charge when it comes to continued investment in technology, creative innovation and IP that defines the era of earned. This incredible recognition affirms our commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity in the ever-evolving world of communications.


We’re also excited to be named to Ad Age’s Agency A-list. In awarding TWSC this esteemed recognition, Ad Age noted our stellar, earned-first work for Pop-Tarts, Pringles, Barbie and Sweden’s tourism board, in addition to TWSC’s truly full-service offerings and core values that lay the groundwork for equity and belonging. The Collective was also recognised for our development in the AI, analytics and tech space, as well as the launch of our “Earned Effect” study, displaying how culturally significant storytelling drives sales and profit growth.


“Being recognised by Fast Company and Ad Age is thrilling proof that we are pushing beyond industry-as-usual to deliver for our clients and colleagues,” said Gail Heimann, CEO of The Weber Shandwick Collective. “It reflects our unwavering commitment to driving meaningful impact for our clients and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of creating value for brands. Our industry is evolving and we’re right there with it – in fact, we’re leading the charge.”
